week 21 day 3

Tomorrow is the big day.  It's gender day!  Well, more like gender morning.  It's crazy that after so many weeks of worry and excitement about whether it's a boy or girl, it'll all come to an end with just one ultrasound.  With just one doctor's appointment that won't even last an hour, the curiosity will be over and we'll know.

I'm hoping to sleep tonight.  With each passing hour I am becoming more and more excited so there's a possibility that I might not sleep tonight.  Or maybe tonight will be like last night ... very restless sleeping.  With the nerves exposed in my belly button from yesterday, I woke up numerous times with excruciating pain.  If my drifting off into deeper sleep moved me at all, I would wake up to throbbing pain around my stomach.  I would much prefer the baby kicking than nerve endings exposed.

Or maybe my sleep will be like 4 nights ago when I would just wake up every now and then just because.  I was exhausted yet wide awake at 2 am, 4 am, 5 am, and 7 am.  Although tonight I'll be awake because I'm excited and that's probably one of the best reasons to be up in the middle of the night.

My pants are too tight today and I think the baby thinks so too.  It keeps kicking the band of my pants out like it's trying to make more room for itself.  And trust me, baby, I wish I wasn't wearing these pants.  But we've been on campus for the past 6 hours and probably still have another hour to go so somehow we're just going to have to make it past this until I can go home and put Mike's pj pants on.  My new favorite lounging pants are Mike's pj pants.  They're about 10 sizes too big but they are wonderful.

  1. Holy cow, apparently I hadn't checked up in a while because you posted two pictures! Your belly is so cute, kim! You're totally going to be a basketball preggers lady. I am so excited for you guys, make sure to post it once you get back from the appointment! P.S. I love that you attributed your guitar hero skills to being asian, cracked me up.
